Johnny Townsend, P, Florida
NFL Draft analysis for Johnny Townsend, P, Florida
Draft Prospect Outlook:
Will boom long punts often but more of a line-drive kicker than someone who'll get major hang time.
Townsend spent five years at Florida, and entered the 2017 season as one of the nation's top punters after averaging a nation-leading 47.9 yards per attempt in 2016. He earned second-team All-SEC honors by the Associated Press and the league's coaches and was widely viewed as an instrumental part of the Gators' success reaching the SEC Championship Game for a second consecutive year.
Townsend followed up that terrific 2016 season with an equally strong 2017 campaign. He averaged 47.5 yards per punt, including a career-long 70-yard boot against Georgia. He racked up 27 punts of at least 50 yards, including six of 60 yards or more. Townsend's accuracy was also quite impressive; he pinned opponents inside their 20-yard line on 27 of 64 punts. - Thomas Goldkamp, GatorBait.net
